The Heart is a Garden
The grass and sky were hand knit.
The flowers and the stems were hand embroidered in pinkish purple and green.
The sun is represented by the bright and shiny beads that were hand beaded.
The handle is hand crocheted.
Sometimes the most beautiful flower in the garden is hidden by weeds. God gives us our children to entrust like delicate flowers. He expects us to water them, feed them, protect them and let them grow up to be everything he intended them to be.
If our children are disappointing or misbehaving, punish them with love. They will outgrow it. I know from my heart that a child who knows they are loved can survive anything including a lifetime among the weeds. Blessings.
